Coupeville cottage description

This historic home is surrounded by a lawn that the local deer enjoy to dine on just outside the kitchen window. One room has a queen bed and the other two twins. They share 1 complete bath with shower and air jetted tube. The Parlor/Living room (at one time a bustling saloon) has a charming gas burning cast iron stove, an entertainment system and a queen size hide-a-bed. The next room has a beautiful dining table and is linked to the kitchen. All that you might need to prepare your meals is found here. This is also the way into the laundry room.
This floor plan can be seen on the web site.
Sound from traffic on Main St. is not a problem due to double paned windows and insulation in the walls of this heavy timbered building that is 131 years old.
If you listen closely, you may hear the sounds of the sailors enjoying their return home from the high seas.

                      Marathons are growing in popularity every year and the Calista Cottage makes a great home stop. It is central to the north end of Whidbey Island and many cross country and trail runs.

                      Birdwatching has been popular for years during migrations north and south.

                      Whale watching for Grey Whales takes off to the south and for Orca (killer) Whales from the north.
